Dr. Grigoryants reviews safety of plastic surgery

This post will describes what steps we take to ensure safety for our patients. When these guidelines are followed, plastic surgery can be performed with a very high degree of safety. 1.

Older patients and patients with medical problems will need to undergo medical clearance by their primary care doctors or cardiologists. In certain cases, even stress tests will be ordered to evaluate the patients cardiac function. From time to time, we will turn down patients based on their age and/or medical condition. 2.
